Summer Vacation to Michaelmas Week 0
Trouble is brewing in turbulent Rome. Mark Antony, triumvir and legendary soldier has abandoned his domestic duties in favour of his beguiling Egyptian queen. While pirates rush the shores, discontent seethes in the hearts of men and in none more so than the eminent Octavius Caesar. Into a spinning backdrop of furious wars, forced smiles and too firm handshakes, Antony must come home. Yet even the titans of Rome cannot sever him from the pull of Cleopatra, the volatile point around which Antony whirls and anchors his world.
Marking the launch of CAST’s 13th stage tour, this year’s production explodes onto the stage with a stark, visceral, physically powerful rendering of one of Shakespeare’s most vibrant tragedies. Devastatingly poignant and startlingly comic, Antony and Cleopatra sets rising star against a hero in decline, while pushing to breaking point the passion that could topple empires.
“Now Antony must leave her utterly”
“Never, he will not.”
